Western Bulldogs v Richmond
Saturday 7:25pm at Etihad Stadium

Western Bulldogs and Richmond both endured difficult Round 6 defeats and will be feverishly hoping to put those painful losses aside when they meet in a cracking Round 7 affair.
Western Bulldogs remain in the Top 8 despite their close loss to GWS last Friday in Canberra with a 4-2 record. The defending premiers have not conceded more than 90 points all season with their defence being ranked fourth but their attack has been concerning, ranking just 10th, scoring just 94 points per game. The Bulldogs are 4-0 in Melbourne this year.
Richmond started the season in incredible form with five straight wins and covers but came crashing back to earth in Adelaide on Sunday with a 76-point loss, their second largest defeat in six years. The Tigers’ defence ranking fell to fifth while their attack is rated 10th. Their 5-1 record has them in fourth. Richmond had not conceded more than 89 points in their first five games before conceding 140 points to the Crows.

What To Expect
The Bulldogs have hardly looked world-beaters this year as a combination of injury and the year after syndrome have taken hold. The Tigers have been gritty for a lot of the year and can upset the Bulldogs here. Richmond are excellent as an underdog in Melbourne while the Bulldogs are extremely unconvincing as a big favourite.
